The Press Release:
Epicenter Festival–a new 3-day destination music experience from premier independent U.S. music festival producer Danny Wimmer Presents–will debut in the heart of the Mid-Atlantic region, at the newly created Rockingham Festival Grounds in Richmond County, North Carolina on Friday, May 10, Saturday, May 11 and Sunday, May 12, 2019.

Epicenter Festival replaces “Carolina Rebellion”, which was held in North Carolina from 2011 – 2018. With a move to the new venue, Epicenter Festival offers an enhanced festival experience. The new festival grounds will be developed in coordination with Rockingham Dragway and Rockingham Speedway, with even more music, extensive camping options, and no curfew.

Festival producer Danny Wimmer explains, “We are very proud of what Carolina Rebellion represented, so we understand that our decision to replace it was confusing to people. It took more time than we had hoped to make the final decision and then work out all of the details. Ultimately, we felt that there was so much more that we could accomplish in the right circumstances. The creation of the ‘Epicenter of rock n’ roll’ in the heart of North Carolina gives us the ability to expand on the festival experience with enhanced camping amenities, nighttime entertainment with no curfew, and expanded food and beverage offerings, all highlighted by a massive music lineup covering the spectrum of rock, metal and alternative rock music. There’s always a next level to strive for – and after 8 great years of Carolina Rebellion, Epicenter is that next level.”
